Bridal Boudoir Inspiration
Emma Paige, gown designer and vintage clothes retailer, collaborated with some talented artisans to create this beautiful boudoir bridal shoot. I will let her explain the inspiration and introduce you to the other vendors.
Inspiration: Our boudoir shoot was inspired not only by vintage silhouettes but also by raw emotions, organic textures, and traditional elegance. Our team collaborated effortlessly to create the perfect storybook setting.
We take you behind the scenes of the bride’s most intimate moments on her wedding day, before the rush of guests and chatter of excitement begin. The bride revels with her girls, enjoying each and every moment of the present, looking back on the past, and anxiously awaiting her new beginning.
In the boudoir, our bride gets ready in an elegant vintage white robe complimented by cream lace and covered buttons. Soft chiffons and vintage laces paint a romantic and timeless love story. Our prop stylist Bronwyn Forbes catered to our bride on her big day. While the bride prepares herself she enjoys a calming cup of tea and later celebrates with her girls by enjoying a glass of champagne and light snack before the hustle and bustle.
Location: Our shoot took place on the grounds of the stunning Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa in Cambridge, Ontario. The day was perfection; soft sunlight uncovered rolling front hills and a dramatic wooded landscape; all peacefully covered in freshly fallen snow, creating a winter wonderland one could only dream of.
Colour Palette: Our colour palette included pearly whites, pastel shades of pinks, turquoise, and golds. Our soft colours were contrasted by dark vintage furs and natural greens, which were inspired by the surrounding forests.
Attire: All three dresses were designed and hand crafted by Toronto fashion designer E. Paige Burchell, owner/founder of EmmaPaige Designs. Each look was inspired by timeless silhouettes, whimsical fairytales, and sparkling city lights. Our maids wore matching dress styles with vintage lace peplums, white satin sashes, and pale pink chiffon skirts; flawless compliments to the bride’s gown. The fur stoles perfected the winter wedding look. Our bride wore an off white gown with a silk chiffon skirt, beaded pearl sash with covered buttons down the back. The babies breath floral accents (made by Nicole Ostonal) completed the looks by creating that whimsical fairytale look, while still remaining timeless and chic.
